Corbin returned from his six week Judo training in Japan and Korea. He trained with the Keio University High School Judo team for five weeks and one week with the USJF Korean Training team at Kyungmin High School. Although this is not Corbin's first trip to these countries, this trip was more intense than previous ones. One reason was that the trip was a immersion in Judo life style - eat, drink, and sleep judo. In Japan, there were 2 sessions daily one lasting 40 minutes and one lasting 3.5 hours. In Korea, there were 3 sessions averaging 2 hours each.

Jonathan and Mattice competed at the Santa Clara Judo Invitational last Sunday and did very well. Jonathan was bumped to an older division where chocking is allowed. Although not trained to choke, he was able to hold his ground and took 3rd place. Mattice as did well, coming from behind, he threw his 2nd opponent for an ippon with only less than 10 seconds in regulation time.
